I'm Not A Kid Anymore

Lyrics by Christina Meyer
Music by John Downing ©

Verse 1
Saw my kids playing just the other day
So young and care free
Started remembering the good old days
When the kid playing was me
Now I've traded childhood for responsibility
Just doesn't seem fair to me

Chorus
I miss recess and nap time
And playing with my toys
What about snow days and summer break
And hanging with the girls
Never having a worry
Wish I could live like before
But I'm not a kid anymore

Verse 2
I remember watching Sesame Street
And Mr. Rogers after school
Now I'm rushing home from work
And thinking what I should cook
It's amazing how things, they change
Seems like that was just yesterday

Chorus

Bridge
Now I'm working two jobs
Just to make ends meet
And trying to be the best wife
And mom that I can be

Chorus

And I'm not a kid anymore
Never know what you've got 'til it's gone
